Academy 360 (formerly Pennywell Comprehensive School) is a mixed all-through school located in the Pennywell area of Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England.[1]

Pennywell Comprehensive School was built in 1967, however in 2008 the school converted to academy status and was renamed Academy 360. In the same year the school relocated to a new building on the same site. The old building was demolished. Academy is sponsored by Sunderland City Council, Sir Bob Murray and the Gentoo social housing group.

Academy 360 offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils. Most graduating students go on to attend Sunderland College which acts as the school’s partner further education provider.[2] Academy 360 also operates 'The Achievement Centre' which offers alternative education for small numbers of pupils from across Sunderland.[3]
